After reading a whole lot about the new Enchroma glasses and seeing all the wonderful experiences colorblind people have, I decided to experience them for myself. I ordered a pair 2 weeks ago to test them out. They arrived pretty quickly and I read everything I could about them in anticipation. I have Deuteranopia so have trouble seeing reds, greens and all related colors in the spectrum.
I went for a walk outside on a hike and placed the color blind glasses on (I recommend going outside for your first try if you get some, it looks beautiful!). I initially saw the enchroma glasses reviewed at http://colorblindcorrectionglasses.com/enchroma-review/. At first I was disappointed as nothing happened to my eyesight for the first 20 minutes. I remembered that there’s and initial adjustment period though while your eyes adjust to the new vision. After the first 20 minutes something happened. A bright vivid light stood out in the distance and caught my eye. The object appeared blue, but no longer the washed out blue I was used to seeing. It was a deep blue that stood out against the background colors. I was looking at a bright blue flower which appeared like nothing I had ever seen. It was like a hologram that captivated me and stopped me in my tracks. How exciting!
As many other vivid colors started popping out all around me I began to tear up with overwhelm. For the rest of the day I wandered around looking at street signs, buildings, people’s clothes and eye colors and many more things. The Enchroma glasses work brilliantly! See an explanation for how these color blind glasses correct vision at http://colorblindcorrectionglasses.com/. I noticed my color vision was way better over long distances and I was capable of distinguishing between different colors with ease while wearing the glasses. To see the rays of the sun so vibrantly for the first time was truly amazing. As I took the color blind glasses off I noticed all the new color tones fade into the usual tones I see. It really is a big difference.
The glasses do cost a lot, but it’s a small price to pay to fix your vision. It only lasts while you wear them, but it’s a huge difference in color perception. Don’t expect to see new colors, but expect colors to become extremely vivid and new tones to emerge. Another great thing about them for us girls is the fact they’re still fashionable and come in many different styles.Top
